Outstanding from first contact to end of the event!
Austin Catering is amazing. We selected them to cater our son’s wedding reception at our home and they did a great job from the first time we contacted. Susan Higgins was very helpful and made a number of great recommendations as the planning progressed. Food was amazing and the staff onsite for the event were fabulous. The setup, meal service and tear down were all done seamlessly without hardly being noticed. They also left the house spotless which was really nice. Lastly they are very flexible as to how everything comes together and who provides what. Highly recommend Austin Catering.Sent on 11/01/2020
Austin Catering's reply:Thank you, John! We enjoyed working with you and Julie and are so glad that you all were very happy!

Austin Catering Killed It!
Austin Catering did an AMAZING job for our wedding. I work in the industry and I work with some of the best catering companies in town, and Austin Catering is by far the best. I've always been sceptical when it comes to catering food (vs a restaurant), but their food is always so delicious. They also have incredible service. Small things like not slamming the back door during a toast, or putting mac and cheese on my plate even though it wasn't on the menu because they knew it was my favorite. We got so much positive feedback from our guest about how much they loved the food. KD was so great to work with during the planning process, always quickly responsive and willing to help with whatever we needed. 10/10, we will always recommend Austin Catering!Sent on 02/04/2020

Austin Catering was fantastic!
Lisa and the staff at Austin Catering went above and beyond to make our wedding beautiful. From the first time we met Lisa, everything was exactly we hoped for and then some. Clear communication in the months leading up to the wedding, the ability to meet with us on our schedule as we visited Austin, and plenty of options to choose from all made things perfect for Monica and I. During the wedding, Lisa and her staff took charge and got things set up quickly. Once our guests arrived, they were always taken care of with food and drink. We had lots of guests raving about how good the food was, especially for a buffet, and Monica and I got to try a little of everything, which was perfect in our whirlwind day. Austin Catering helped us put last-minute touches on our cake and left the venue (Mercury Hall) in better shape than we had found it. The staff was super helpful, and we were so thrilled to see Lisa take charge of everything once she arrived and help the food and beverage service run so smoothly. We had such a beautiful wedding and Austin Catering was a huge part of that — the perfect start to our life together :-)Sent on 03/09/2020

Perfection and fun!
Austin Catering was great to work with start to finish. The caterer manager, K.D., was easy to work with, down to earth and professional every step of the way. She guided the process with excellent care, a steady hand and 5-star accommodations. She took care of everything we needed and there was never a moment that we didn't feel loved and cared for by K.D. and her entire team. Now, the food...the food was excellent! We had a tasting and that was so much fun and it helped us make the final decisions about the wedding menu. We had pork with chimichurri, pecan-crusted chicken with peach chutney, spring salad with strawberries and chevre, roasted vegetables, penne pasta with tomatoes and basil and rosemary rolls. The menu was delicious and seriously, everyone enjoyed dinner! Oh, and the passed appetizer, fritti artichoke - to die for! The staff could not have been nicer, more efficient and they knew our venue like the back of their hand which was great, we were at Mercury Hall. The start to finish process with Austin Catering was a joy and the food was delicious, I highly recommend them.Sent on 07/27/2019

Yummy food & great service!
We used Austin Catering for our bridal shower and wedding reception and both times the food and service was incredible! They were able to make many dishes dairy and gluten free while still tasting amazing, which was a huge plus! We worked with Lisa throughout the process and she was fabulous! They accommodated every request we had even when we had to reschedule everything due to COVID. Would recommend them to anyone who is wanting good food and great service.Sent on 07/27/2020

Amazing Service and Great Food
Working with Austin Catering was great! I loved working with Lisa and her team - they provided excellent service and the food was delicious at the event we worked together. Lisa was also fantastic about working with the venue and our clients to ensure that all guests felt safe and were taken care of since our event was occuring while COVID has been happening. The staff provided an excellent and efficient way to serve guests while also keeping plates, napkins, food and cutlery sanitized and safe. 10/10 would recommend!Sent on 08/05/2020

Wonderful experience so far
Everything with Austin Catering has gone wonderfully smooth so far. We are currently working with Lisa and love her laid back style and top notch customer service. We also really love how flexible they have been with all of our food, plans, etc. The food at our tasting was amazing and we are so looking forward to showing off the menu for our guests come wedding day!Sent on 08/16/2019

Great catering company!
Kristin and her team at Austin Catering did an amazing job. Through the tasting to postponing to the actual event, Austin Catering made for an easy process. The food was amazing and guests’ plates were loaded up! Also the Mac and cheese balls were everyone’s favorite. If you’re looking for a fancy, affordable catering company give them a call!Sent on 10/06/2020

Amazing food any service. Anyone in Austin looking for a caterer should look no farther.
We used Austin Catering for our wedding this past weekend and we were SO IMPRESSED. The food tasted wonderful and the buffet line went so smoothly and guests couldn't complement the food enough. The wait staff were phenomenal and made sure every guest was taken care of, especially myself and my husband. The bartenders were absolutely amazing. There was never a line and yet everyone had a drink in their hand the entire night.Sent on 11/12/2019
We had the pleasure of working with Lisa throughout our wedding process and she was absolutely wonderful. She was incredibly responsive and made sure every single detail was exactly the way we wanted it.
To make things even better, Austin Catering was BY FAR the most reasonable caterer we spoke with. If you are getting married or have an event in the Austin area, don't waste your time looking at another caterer. Austin Catering is the best!

Happy Hearts + Happy Stomachs
Thank you so much Austin Catering Company! We had an amazing experience working with Austin Catering! From the first taste testing all the way through till the end, Kristin and her team was supportive, receptive and a fast responder to all communications. As a long distance planning bride, I appreciated their professionalism and attention to detail. Once we teamed up with Austin Catering I never had a moment of anxiety about the food! During the wedding they took care of all the guests and paid particular attention to make sure my husband and I were happy. Now weeks later I am still dreaming about how delicious the food was! Everyone was happy and had full stomachs!Sent on 01/23/2019

Flexible, budget-friendly, SO tasty!!
Lisa and Austin Catering are AMAZING. They are so flexible and accommodating and can literally make any dish happen for you! She even had the waiter's attire go with the theme of my wedding without me even asking. I have received SO many compliments on the food at my wedding, and Austin Catering was able to do it all well within my budget! I highly recommend this caterer for your wedding or other events.Sent on 09/17/2019

Great Taste, Great Service
Austin Catering provided excellent food and bar services at a reasonable price! Our table settings were beautiful (which they provided) and everyone loved the Texas BLT Bites for the appetizers! Even 5 days after the wedding, people have still told me how much they loved the food and the blue goblets at the tables! Their servers were very polite and happy to be helping us, which made our day much more enjoyable! We constantly had servers asking to help us as well! Great food and even better hospitality!Sent on 09/20/2019

The BEST in the business!
We had the pleasure of working with K.D. at Austin Catering and have nothing but great things to say! Throughout the whole planning process, it was clear that K.D. was very knowledgeable and a great resource to go to for advice and suggestions. One thing that really made Austin Catering stand out to us was the way they plate their food. I was very hesitant to do a buffet style food service at my wedding, but seeing their food presentation and how everything was plated on beautiful serving dishes and not standard chaffing dishes was a huge plus! Most importantly though, the food was absolutely INCREDIBLE! Our friends and family raved about the food and drinks - specifically the smoke salmon. I am still amazed that they were able to keep the food tasting so delicious when feeding around 200 people. The whole evening truly couldn't have been better and Austin Catering played a major role in making it so special. I only hope to one day plan another event in Austin so that we can use Austin Catering again!Sent on 09/30/2019

Austin Catering was such a great choice!! Everyone keeps raving about how great the food was! All of it was gluten free (including desserts) and it was so delicious. The catering staff were so quick and continually filled the buffet seamlessly. They were very caring to my husband and I and even packed up a plate and desserts for each of us to take with us. The bartenders were great as well, I don't recall a line ever forming and we had 130 people. Seriously I cant recommend this catering company enough! I worked with Susan and she was so organized and wonderful to work with!Sent on 11/12/2019

Above and Beyond Expectations!
Austin Catering exceeded our expectations. Not only was the service amazing, but our guests raved about the food selections. They accommodated our needs and made last minute changes up to the day before our wedding. KD was our point of contact and she went above and beyond with helping us plan out our big day and fit our budget, even when she wasn't in the office. Since we didn't have a wedding planner, she helped us with even the small details that one would usually cover. The staff that worked our wedding were on point - they truly catered to our guests' needs and made sure that we were well fed and well served. They even packed us up to-go boxes because they knew we wouldn't have to eat much. I honestly couldn't have picked a better choice for our wedding.Sent on 07/19/2019

Best Catered Meal We Have Ever Had
I cannot say enough good things about Austin Catering. K.D. was so wonderful to work with and even went so far as to recreate one of my favorite sides to cook to serve at our wedding for all of our guests. People came up to us all throughout the night and the next day to tell us it was by far the best food they have ever had at a catered event. The chicken was moist & the breading didn't fall off when you were eating it, the tenderloin was perfect, the macaroni and cheese, appetizers, summer salad, every single thing we ate was delicious! Their staff was wonderful & so attentive! Highly highly recommend Austin Catering!Sent on 06/21/2019

Top to Bottom Flawless
Lisa and the Austin Catering team are absolutely amazing. I am a chef, and it is quite difficult to impress me. These guys blew me away with their menu, freshness, flavor profiles, and attention to detail. Stellar menu aside, let me tell you, true success is in the details. I had been working with another caterer up until about 3 months before my wedding date, and simply could not continue with the horrible service. I contacted Lisa at Austin Catering, and instantly all of my frustration and stress were wiped clean. Not only was Lisa able to accommodate our date on pretty much zero notice, but she worked with my schedule to get a tasting set up, made sure each and every detail was covered, and turned a daunting task into one I thoroughly enjoyed. And, as if all of that wasn't enough, my wedding vendor MVP award goes to Lisa for this one - 1.5 hours before my ceremony was set to begin, Lisa approached me and informed me that my rental company had not brought any plates!!! Of course, I immediately started panicking. But, before I could even start thinking of what to do, Lisa gave me three options for solutions and simply asked, "Are any of these options unacceptable?". At the end of the day, somehow, she managed to get her warehouse to supply our plates and get them to the venue and set up, all in time, without one more word or concern from there. Austin Catering is now my one and only go-to catering company. I've never been so impressed, top to bottom, with a catering company. If you're still in the market for a catering company for your special day, look no further.Sent on 06/14/2019

Best Catering Service Out There!
I hunted for a while for the perfect caterer. Originally, I wanted to go with something on the cheaper side. The two that my venue suggested never got back to me! I then decided to contact Austin Catering. K.D. was very responsive, answering all of my questions from Day 1! She invited us to an event to try a selection of their dishes. We drove 2 hours after work to go, and we were not disappointed! The food was amazing, and talking with K.D. in person gave me all of the confidence I needed to choose them as our caterer. The price I paid for catering ended up being very reasonable compared other options and was well worth the peace of mind that came with it. On the day of the wedding, the entire staff was amazing. The person running point on dining room set-up did everything I asked and was extremely efficient. He advised me to set up the buffet inside so that my guests were not miserable standing over hot food outside, and he could not have been more right! The head of the bartending made sure he understood my vision on which bars I wanted to use during which parts of the night. There was no detail left out. K.D. continued to do an amazing job overseeing everything on the wedding day as well. I'm a perfectionist and can pretty much always find a point for improvement for any service I use, but Austin Catering exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend hiring them!Sent on 08/01/2019

Austin Catering was always responsive even if we were a little crazy and not on a schedule. They made time for us to come in and taste everything and really worked with my in-laws budget. We met with them on multiple occasions to make sure everything would go smoothly and Lisa even helped us rewrite our timeline. On the day of the wedding, the caterers did things that they didn't even have to do. They completely organized the tables and linen for our reception and even cleaned up all the tables and chairs at the end of the night. Their food is absolutely to die for and they even made our cheesecake wedding cake. The food was all anyone could talk about and we will enjoy eating it for days. You really can't go wrong with booking them!Sent on 05/22/2019

Austin Catering was our second tasting. We were thinking of going with the first until we tried them. The food is simply fabulous. They were able to take the idea of a "food experience" for my wedding guest with a theme of southern elegance and bring the vision to life!Sent on 07/10/2018

We were in desperate need of a wedding coordinator. Kristen stepped in to help us out. We had several challenges: bride's family from out-of-state, covid requirements, remote wedding location, food truck (so no catering staff), unexpected weather, and trash removal issues. Kristen worked like Cinderella all afternoon and evening making sure things ran smoothly, covering the gaps, and solving problems. We will never know everything she did for us. Our guests had a good time and the bride and groom had the day they wanted. 100% recommend.Sent on 11/06/2020
